Windows 7: mystery laptop in DHCP client list

mystery laptop in DHCP client list

I was looking over the menus in my router (SBG6580) config page. As of right now I have my netbook and iPhone connected. I found a latop listed that I do not have:
00:24:2b:bb:6d:d3192.168.000.004255.255.255.000D:00 H:01 M:00 S:00Fri Dec 13 20:45:53 1901 laptop

I selected it and deleted it. Where did it come from. Should I change my router/wireless password?

Depending on the security of your router, then it's rather easy to crack a password if you know what you're doing. I would suggest changing your password and maybe improving your security.
